Because of insurance issues, within our community there is a separate LLC that is operating an electric car. The community is supporting it by providing a parking space close to where it can be plugged in, and those in the community that wanted to are paying the costs and upkeep of it as a separate users group. It is all electric and is a one of a kind older electric car. Luckily a couple of our members like to tinker with things, so have figured out how to keep it running. (there have been a few mishaps, like driving off while still plugged in, etc). I'm not a member of the users group so I don't know all the details. It is a very ecologically sound way to do those little errands, like to the grocery store, where a gas powered car never even has a chance to get warmed up. --audrey watson Winslow cohousing, Bainbridge island, wa -----Original Message----- From: cohousing-l-request [at] cohousing.org [mailto:cohousing-l-request [at] cohousing.org] Sent: Friday, December 07, 2007 3:16 AM To: cohousing-l [at] cohousing.org Subject: Cohousing-L Digest, Vol 47, Issue 8 Send Cohousing-L mailing list submissions to cohousing-l [at] cohousing.org To subscribe or unsubscribe via the World Wide Web, visit http://lists.cohousing.org/mailman/listinfo/cohousing-l or, via email, send a message with subject or body 'help' to cohousing-l-request [at] cohousing.org You can reach the person managing the list at cohousing-l-owner [at] cohousing.org When replying, please edit your Subject line so it is more specific than "Re: Contents of Cohousing-L digest..."

It's what I can remember in time to use. _________________________________________________________________ Cohousing-L mailing list -- Unsubscribe, archives and other info at: http://www.cohousing.org/cohousing-L/ **************************************Check out AOL's list of 2007's hottest products.

I've spoken with 2 people who had GEMs who said that they had serious reliability problems. Some of our residents are looking into getting a shared electric vehicle for local travel in this small hilly town. thanks, Sarito Nevada City CoHousing ------------------------------ _________________________________________________________________ Cohousing-L mailing list -- Unsubscribe, archives and other info at: http://www.cohousing.org/cohousing-L/ End of Cohousing-L Digest, Vol 47, Issue 8 ******************************************
